Subject: No MOOG
@Stellablu122 the keyboard sound you are hearing on this Dark Star comes from a Rhodes electric piano. Keith didn't start using a Moog synthesizer on stage until 1977 (see Row Jimmys, Lazy>Sups, and Dancins from this era for an example). Even then, he switched back to his Yamaha CM electric grand piano shortly after the fall '77 tour ended. I agree with you though; I love Keith when he branches out from his usual grand piano tone. For some reason, he had a hard time doing that (one of the reasons Jerry got tired of his sound). He is a brilliant Rhodes player, as evidenced on Blues for Allah.
This show is amazing. Summer '73 is classic Dead.
Subject: June of '73
This month was more of the country rockabilly twang than the jazzed infused psychedelia that would occur a mere three months later.
The first set is well played and features an outstanding Playing in the Band.
Bob continues the fireworks with a stellar GSET.
The DS is excellent for the simple fact that it features Kieth playing the Moog, which works wonderfully in the song, and it Jerry still favors the wah wah pedal for some cool peaks. The transition into a still primitive Eyes is very good and the transition into Stella Blue is my preference over China Doll is also very nice.
The Sugar Magnolia is a power house revival and features a blow out version of SSDD.
They rock it out for the encore as well.
The second set is shorter for some reason this night.
This matrix is fun to listen to as well.
Subject: Row Jimmy tight
jerrry singing good on this one. rhythm is crisp by bill. bass is deep for 73 recording. this row jimmy is tiiiite. this shit is tiiiite. i'll give it a five as to not rock the boat. i'll listen to the rest now. but i'm full of stoned excitement, so thought i'd review this now.
This is a great show and nicely recorded, a good blend between audience and SBoard. I enjoyed it much, thanks!
Subject: Dark Star!
The Dark Star jam on this is very sweet indeed. I picked that up a long time ago on a real clean cassette. A favorite version, up there with the very best.
Sound (on the sbd recording) is very good quality, real nice bass, and good balance overall.

!wow----> 'Matrix' Soundboard/Audience Mix <----wow!
I love these 'Matrix' shows!
The sound is far superior to just a soundboard.
The mix sounds balanced and the GRATEFUL DEAD sound superb. Great "live" sound.
Magnificent sound, I highly recommend you get all shows that Chris has 'matrixed'...I am.

Subject: warm, sweet sound, good show
Bob & Jerry's vocals come through nice, just the right amount of crowd, instruments sound good, not too crisp, but nice sounding. This is my second time listening to the show and I'm enjoying it.

This tune stands out for me as as a great display of Jerry's vocals.
